This research aims at investigating intermediate-scale workflows using the surgical staff’s movement pattern. In this study, we have introduced an ultrasonic location aware system to monitor intraoperative movement trajectories on surgical staffs for the workflow analysis. And we developed trajectory data mining for surgical workflow segmentation, and analyzed trajectory data with multiple cases. As a result, in 77.18% of total time, a kind of current operation stage could be correctly estimated. With high accuracy 85.96%, the estimation using trajectory data was able to distinguish whether a current 5 minutes was transition time from one stage to another stage or not.. Based on these results, we are implementing the surgery safe support system that promotes safe & efficient surgical operations.
